​Night on the Town

This song is by Lake and appears on the album The Blast of Silence (2006).

Van and Willie went out one night
Once they get out on the road
Well then everything is alright
Had to get away from the kids and the wives
And they ran into some city boys that didn't walk just right
And the line was drawn for another showdown
Like they'd always seen it done
And the line was drawn for another showdown
Was an old man bailing out a son

Going out for a night on the town
Going out to the smoke and trees
Going out for a night on the town
Said what made you go and do there
We were just having fun
Van and Willie went in one night

There's a green table down at the midway
Where they rack up the balls for these
Reputations are made
There's a green forest full of the oaks and pines
In the cleared a space in the middle
Secret scores are settled
And the claim was made round the table this night
And they rode there through the trees
And the young boys told how the city boys tried
And one man fell to his knees

Going out for a night on the town
Going out to the smoke and trees
Going out for a night on the town
One made you go and do there
Well we were just having some fun
Van and Willie went out one night

The line was drawn for another showdown
Like they'd always seen and done
When the lights came up on there little woods town
Was an old man bailing out a son

Going out for a night on the town
Going out to the smoke and trees
Going out for a night on the town
One made you go and do there
Well we were just having some fun
Van and Willie went out one night

Going out for a night on the town
